    Inspecting the system is not a cause. Try a again. Does the word "Coward" mean anything to you.

    I believe Congress is in the process of changing full time as defined by hr to 30. From what i recall it is around 40 now.

    OK, but like I said every country has the same problem.

    In past recessions, gong by memory on what I read, certain areas of the US fared better than others, people moved to where there was work???
    Companies do not see growth and are sitting on their money as they are not confident of a recovery so do not expand.
    So I've heard.

    When are the people of this country going to realize they're being played like a banjo by liberalism.

    It's big business and big politics to do whatever it takes to divide us in every way possible. Black/white, rich/poor, old/young, male/female, gay/straight, city/country, northern/southern, religious/non........puke.

    I'd bet people have pretty much the same experience I do every day. I see people from all walks, and we get along just dandy. Yet liberals claim I'm having secret meetings in my basement with others like me to rid the world of everybody that doesn't meet every category I fall under.

    Wake up. They're not for you. They're using you.

    if you give a million and you make 100 million you still give more than a guy who makes 20K an gives 1000 even thug he gives five percent and you give one percent

    your graph in no way disputes what I said. and it doesn't delineate the top one percent but rather than each quintile

    Is that your goal for the rich to say to the poor "poor baby"?

    The problem with that statistic is the definition of poverty.

    Americans are predators. Like a rattlesnake, it's not worthwhile to complain about the snakes's poison. You merely avoid stepping on it. It's an unreasonable animal. You are right that liberals who complain about the rich are like someone complaining about a poisonous snake and letting it bite them rather than just accepting that its a wild animal and jumping out of the way. Americans follow rules of predation and cannot be bothered to change themselves anymore than a pack of wolves. I think of libertarians as a pack of wolves in fact. Poor people in other lands who have been abused by American foreign policy understand this best, the USA is the USA, it's not something to argue with.

    Re: Most of America’s rich think the poor have it easy

    my experience is anecdotal...i understand that

    i have worked for six self made millionaires in my career

    started with little or nothing....and built sizable businesses

    some have been more charitable than others, but all have had their "pet projects"

    and all have setup programs for giving a hand up to those that have less....

    but back to the OP.....

    my two cents.....is that most of those rich have been around the world

    and when you compare our "poor" to other places in the world, it is not a stretch to say those that live here have it much better and easier than those in other parts of the world

    that statement in it itself is a no brainer......

    my boss just got back from the middle east in November.....so the rich may see things from a slightly different perspective than most of us do
